Born July 19, 1927, in Richmond, Indiana, to Joseph A. and Dorothy Eilerman Moss, Dorothy was a life-long resident of this community until 2017, when her health required a move to Edmond to be near her daughter. She graduated from Richmond High School in 1945. After high school Dorothy worked for the Richmond Baking Company, until marrying James Stevenson in 1949 and starting their family. She later became co-owner and bookkeeper at Stevenson Printing Company and then at Stevenson Photography, before retiring in 2009. Dorothy was a life-long parishioner of St. Andrew Catholic Church, until becoming a charter member of Holy Family Catholic Church, where she attended until moving to Oklahoma. Dorothy loved traveling with her husband, Jim, especially to see their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who were a real joy to her! In her free time, Dorothy (known as “Dot” to her many friends and “Aunt Dot” to her nieces and nephews) enjoyed bowling for many years, sewing, crafting, playing cards, and working Sudoku puzzles.
